An interesting bit of news was sent to Mania about the possible return of Captain Power and the Soldiers of Future. The Geeks of Doom are reporting that Gary Goodard and company are planning a return to the series. Here is what Geeks of Doom reported:
“...Goddard is bringing in some heavy behind-the-camera talent to make this the best show it can possibly be. Along with Goddard the new series will be produced by Roger Lay Jr., Eric Carnagey, and former Paramount Television Senior Executive Jeffrey Hayes. During his time at Paramount Hayes oversaw the production of such hit shows as Family Ties, Cheers, and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, former writers and producers for Star Trek: Enterprise and the creators of the U.S. spin-off of the popular British sci-fi series Primeval entitled Primeval: New World, will be working on the show’s creative development as well” (read the full story here). Based on the article, it all seems just like a lot of wishful thinking. We here at Mania would love to see the series return. Check out our review of the complete series from last year here.
The Captain Power Synopsis: Earth, 2147. The legacy of the Metal Wars, when man fought machine and machines won. Bio-Dreads, monstrous creations that hunt down human survivors and digitize them. Volcania, center of the Bio-Dread Empire, stronghold and fortress of Lord Dread, feared ruler of this new order. But from the fires of the Metal Wars arose a new breed of warrior, born and trained to bring down Lord Dread and his Bio-Dread empire. They were soldiers of the future, mankind's last hope.
